Gardaí are investigating a fatal road traffic collision which killed a 25-year-old woman at Castlebellingham shortly after 2am this morning.

The woman was fatally injured when the car she was driving crashed into a parked car on the Main street of Castlebellingham.

The woman was alone in the car at the time.

Gardaí have said the crash happened in very dense fog and have appealed for motorists to take extra care when driving in dense fog as it has resulted in poor visibility in many places.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and her body has been taken to our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Drogheda where a post mortem examination will be carried out.

The road at the scene is closed pending an examination of the area by Garda Forensic Collision investigators. Diversions are in place.
